[mythtv] Via EPIA-M and DVB-T

	I have Myth running on a Via EPIA-M 1000N with a Nova-T DVB
card - I am using the standard RH9 kernel (2.4.20-8) but I had to
patch the DVB driver to get it to compile. I found the patch somewhere
on the linuxtv.org site via a Google search.

Unfortunately my DVB-T stream is full of holes which seem to crash
Myth/Via-HW driver on a regular basis. I have been working on a fix
and it seems to be working, so I'd be happy to post it if someone
can remind me how to submit a patch!

I would suggest changing the kernel to a supported via kernel, getting
the epia-m graphics to work first. Then move on to any trouble that
arises from compiling dvb support on that kernel. To my experience the
dvb driver is very compatible with linux kernels in all. If it fails to
compile for you, try searching for the errors it'll give on either
linuxtv.org mailinglist archive or google, and i'll bet you'll find a
solution to your problem.
